The Washington Park Arboretum is a 3.5 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Seattle, Washington that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for walking, trail running, and road biking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

The Arboretum is a hidden gem on the shores of Lake Washington. Jointly managed by UW and the City of Seattle, its 230 acres are a dynamic assortment of plants found nowhere else.
The winter garden is absolutely deserving a visit during spring.
This is a beautiful park I'll definitely come back to. However, the trails are not marked well and the trail map is fairly useless. With construction going on a lot of the side trails are closed. But it is easy to figure out which way you're going. Good for walking and exploring the local flora.
Simply one of my family's favorite places to walk in Seattle. Well maintained trails and great for teaching kids about plants. Do wish there was more signage for individual specimens.
